Safety Programs and Services

The Greater Lafayette and Purdue University community has received national recognition for being a great place to live, work, and study. Yet, it is not immune to some of the problems that beset the remainder of the country—and crime is one such reality. Through a variety of programs and services, Purdue strives to provide a safe and secure environment for students, staff, and visitors; but, it is only possible to maintain safety and security when each student, staff member, and visitor takes an active role in the effort. No police department, programs, or procedures can be effective unless individuals exercise reasonable care and prudence. Safety and security is everyone's responsibility.
